I don’t really post with the mouth words on here too often anymore, huh?

Well how about this?!

Good news everyone! I fixed my delay pedal over the weekend! Many of you probably had no idea there was anything wrong with it, but all is well now. 

The problem: My beloved TC Electronic Flashback X4 had stopped retaining my preset information. It holds 3 presets that are user defined and for some reason one day it just went back to factory settings. I had a 2290 digital delay, a quick slap-back type thing for leads, and a long heavily modulated Roland Space Echo sound. One day- poof. Gone. 

The solution: TC has this really awesome thing they use called “technology” that allows me to update the firmware on my pedals (yeah, firmware. wild), so I went for it! I figured the worst case scenario was it wouldn’t work and I’d have to be fine with the factory sounds and seek repair, but it worked! SUCK IT TREBEK! 

I’m back in delay city and it is fantastic. 

Sidebar: This is the #2 reason to buy TC Electronic over Line 6. You can update your shit. Reason #1? Oh, it sounds way better. 

So excited. I’ve also got my own tone prints going on now… hot damn. This is great.

The Best Longreads on Autism
Autism rates have skyrocketed in recent years, according to recent data from the Centers for Disease Control. Much of that has to do with our growing awareness of the disorder. But despite what we are learning about the possible origins and causes of autism, which has no cure, it continues to frustrate and perplex.
In honor of Autism Awareness Month, we’ve compiled a list of longform journalism pieces that give glimpses into the world of those diagnosed with the disorder, and the struggle of those who love and care for them. In one, a father figures out the secret to connecting with his autistic son. In another, we meet the first person ever diagnosed with the disorder. Bookmark these four deep dives into the world of autism, and take your time to read them throughout the month.

The End of the Pier photos by Finn Hopson

"The slow demise of Brighton’s West Pier.

 The final section of the UK’s only grade II listed pier, photographed during some of the lowest tides of the year from 2012 until the present day. An ongoing project that will end once its finally disappeared into the sea. As seems appropriate for a project concerning the slow passing of time each image is shot as a very long exposure, varying from about 30 seconds to 4 minutes, isolating the details of this grand old structure in the water, and highlighting what’s no longer there. “
